So there are couple of things that I thought would get me ready for New Orleans. The fact that I’m from Texas (so I’m used to the heat and humidity) and the fact that I go to a heated yoga class about four times a week. Wrong. New Orleans. Was. Out. Of. Control. Hot. And. Humid. No matter, lots of sweat was not going to change how much fun the weekend was going to be. (Though it changed my wardrobe from half-clothed, to under-clothed, but what’s new?)

With that, there were a couple of things that I thought would get me ready for a Bachelorette Party in New Orleans. The fact that, I venture to Vegas occasionally, and, well that’s all. While Bourbon Street did have lights, music, and alcohol – let’s be real – it’s a dirtier smaller rowdier version of Vegas. But, it was awesome. So now to what you came for – snapshots of the weekend.

[Disclaimer]: Yes, some pics are blurry. What’d you expect? Happy Vicariously Bacheloretting!
